  • road star milage

    MY 06 road star reads 8900 on the odometer and when the key is turned on 2 extra digits flash 00 for a few seconds the then reads 8900. AM i correct in thinking if it was one hundred and eighty-nine thousand mile it would use the unused digits, right? Just looking for confirmation the i am reading the mileage right.

        Yea, I believe it would read 108,900. Even so, R*s will do well over 100k miles if maintained, which is mainly proper oil. [MC oil with sufficient ZDDP] Search the site if you're not familiar.

          My '01 is sitting on 104,000 now and still jams for me. I try to stay below 80 most of the time.

              You should shoot for the record... What IS the highest mileage R* anybody truly knows of? Mine will never get to be high mileage ones in my lifetime... I have 3 and I swap between them all the time, so none get more than maybe a couple thou in a riding season.... I don't even keep track of it anymore. I know it's never a whole lot, so I just change the oil and filters in all 3 each spring.

                  84k on my 03. 162K is the highest I have actually seen


                  Wherever you go in life, ride there if at all possible.

                    John's got 112k miles on his... What's the highest here on the Clinic?

                    I'll have to check, but I don't think I've got more than, maybe, 43k on my '04.
